Physical Therapy

Direct Access Physical Therapy

Committing to a plan is easier when you have a partner to guide you through it. Whatever your physical therapy goals may be, we’ll be there to cheer you on, rep by rep, step by step. We’re excited to offer you the convenience of direct access physical therapy, meaning you don’t need a physician referral to get treatment. If you’re experiencing any aches, pain, strains or sprains, reach out to our team directly for personalized care. (Most insurances accepted for direct access. Please call to confirm.)

Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab

Working in conjunction with our orthopedic specialists and surgeons, our physical therapists develop an evidence-based exercise plan that’s right for you, both at our facilities and your home. Our physical therapists help you increase mobility, reduce swelling and minimize scar tissue, using combined exercises that can include aquatic-based training, strength equipment and more.

Depending on your needs, we provide inpatient or outpatient rehabilitative care. That means you can recover in our facilities with continuous support. Or you can heal comfortably at home with direct access to your therapy team at one of 18+ convenient outpatient locations.

Advanced Treatment and Support

Within our institute, you’ll find rehabilitation centers that are accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for Comprehensive Rehabilitation. You’ll also have access to the leading-edge AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, a piece of rehabilitation equipment developed by NASA that relieves pressure on your joints while you exercise and rehabilitate. Some of the facilities in our network are among the few in Central Florida to offer this life-changing device.

Getting back in the swing of life after surgery or injury requires a careful, whole-person approach. Your physical therapy team won’t just guide you through exercises and stretches. We’ll give you the resources and training you need to continue your rehabilitation and build strength on your own.

Occupational Therapy

Sometimes, orthopedic injuries can make daily activities feel impossible. You may have trouble doing the things that once came easily, like getting dressed or typing on the keyboard. Our occupational therapists are here to work with you, guiding you to relearn and master all of the tasks that are so familiar. Whether you’re recovering from a surgery or learning to adjust to a new orthopedic diagnosis, we can help ease you back to health with manual techniques, therapeutic exercise and modalities.

We help you rediscover how to do daily activities like bathing, eating, dressing, performing fine motor skills and managing your life at home. Beyond just guiding your muscle memory and strengthening your musculoskeletal system, we can also make in-home safety modifications to keep you feeling secure and confident. Reach for a life of normalcy, strength and confidence. Lean on us to get you there.

Massage Therapy

The healing power of touch is profound. When recovering from orthopedic surgery or injury, massage therapy can increase blood flow to the site, ease muscle tension and help your body heal. Our licensed medical massage therapists are trained in a variety of massage therapies and can determine which is best to speed your recovery, including:

  • Deep Tissue
  • Myofascial Release
  • Neuromuscular
  • Reflexology
  • Relaxation
  • Therapeutic
  • Trigger Point

You’ll be able to relax in a comforting, uplifting environment while our massage therapists ease your pain. Massage therapy does more than soothe and heal your body. It helps nurture your emotional well-being, relieving anxiety and calming your soul.

Fitness and Personal Training

We can’t wait to help you feel better and stronger. Together, we’ll create a plan to help prevent future injury, build muscle and aerobic endurance, and increase flexibility.

Our trainers will assess where you are in fitness — and where you want to be. We’ll then create a blueprint for success, working with you one-on-one to reach your personal goals. We work with adolescents, adults and seniors, tailoring our approaches to meet your distinct needs. Within our network, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art fitness facilities that include equipment like the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, a device created by NASA that eases pressure on joints during exercise.

And beyond just physical fitness and strength, we offer nutritional, dietary and weight-management guidance, so you can reach for a life of wellness. At every milestone and for every goal, we are at your side, both challenging you and cheering you on.
